Estonia wants to have robotic judges pronounce judgments
Estonia is an advanced country committed to using the latest technologies and artificial intelligence. Ott Velsberg, Chief Data Officer in the Baltic State, is launching his latest AI project as a test this year. In the future, robotic judges should decide on smaller claims of less than € 7,000, like the magazine Wired reported. Advantage: This would relieve judges and court officials, because in Estonia there is also a large backlog of unprocessed cases. The AI judges will first be tested in a contract dispute as part of a pilot project. To this end, plaintiffs and defendants must upload all court-relevant documents. The AI analyzes them and makes a decision. In the last resort, however, a human judge may object to this verdict.

Mars is in Canada

And we know that even on Earth there is a place that is very close to Mars with its weather data and geographic formations: Devon Island, an uninhabited island in the Canadian Arctic. If you want to see what life would be like on Mars or on Devon Island, you can now start Google Street View. Google has recently presented street-level images of Devon Island, FoxNews discovered. Mars makes you mobile. But not at work, sports and games – these definitely fall out on both Mars and Devon Island …

Is it a bird? Is it a dinosaur? Or the drone of the future? MetaFly is currently one of the hottest new projects on Kickstarter.
